* In Creator/MercedesLackey's ''Literature/TalesOfTheFiveHundredKingdoms'' series, "fairy godmother" is a trade taken up by women who can't fill the roles that "the Tradition" tries to shoehorn them into and end up with great magical power as a result. The job of being a fairy godmother involves being GenreSavvy enough to use the Tradition against itself to minimize the harm done to everyone involved; they were originally actual fairies, but eventually the role got handed down to human women and the "fairy" part was only retained as a title.

* In ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles,'' Harry has one of these, literally, and TheFairFolk are a lot scarier than in the Disneyverse. The kick is that Cinderella's fairy godmother would have been with the more Disney-esque Summer Court, while the Leanansidhe, Harry's godmother, comes from the [[EvilCounterpart Winter Court]]. While scary, dangerous, and insane by most reasonable standards, Lea truly does want to protect Harry and wants the best for him...[[BlueAndOrangeMorality in her own way]]. Due to a MagicallyBindingContract, he belongs to her, and she sometimes tries to collect. What happens if she wins? [[spoiler: You know those hunting dogs that herald her arrival? ''They weren't dogs originally.'']] However, lately, she's proven to be very good (if ''scary'') to have as an ally.
** Interestingly, during ''Changes'' she plays with the classic Cinderella storyline by dressing Harry for [[StormingTheCastle a very different kind of party]]. Being of the winter court, her gifts vanish at noon instead of midnight.

* ''WesternAnimation/TwiceUponATime'' has a DeadpanSnarker version who tries to help the heroes out. She doesn't seem to have much faith in Ralph and Mumford, nor in Rod Rescueman, the rookie superhero she hires to help them on their quest.

** In-series fairy godmothers are treated as a subset of witches, and in some cases the two seem to blend into each other; in ''CarpeJugulum'', which starts as a parody of Sleeping Beauty, the Lancre witches are invited to attend the birth of the princess.

* The [[Fanfic/{{Cinderjuice}} Contractually Obligated Chaos]] series features the Fairy God''father'', a Creator/MarlonBrando {{expy}} who is not really a fairy, but a LawfulNeutral ghost with a lot of unusual powers even for the setting. Fortunately for the heroes, he becomes rather fond of them and finds [[LoopholeAbuse ways to circumvent his own rules about favoritism]].



* In ''Film/ASimpleWish'', Martin Short plays Murray, the world's first and only fairy godfather, whose first assignment is to grant a little girl's wish that her father could get the lead role in a Broadway musical...while simultaneously fighting an evil fairy-godmother-turned-WickedWitch's plot.

* Episode "Janine, You've Changed" of ''WesternAnimation/TheRealGhostbusters" shows Janine under the influence of an evil demon passing as her fairy godmother. This as a way to explain Janine's radical changes in look and behavior throughout the series (which were due to ExecutiveMeddling).
